Zoo Gets Kids Out Of The House, Into The Wild

ROYAL OAK — Looking for ways to keep the kids busy over the summer, learning and engaged instead of zoned out in front of the TV?

Check this out: The Detroit Zoo is offering a lineup of new and past-favorite Summer Safari camps for youngsters to enjoy all summer long. From June 25 through Aug. 17, 2012, children ages 4 to 15 can explore the wonders of nature and wildlife with tours of the Zoo, hands-on activities, games and crafts.

Parents can choose from a variety of half-day, single-day, weeklong and overnight sessions geared toward specific age groups. A combination of programs can be paired for a week’s worth of camps.

Prices for the Summer Safari camp sessions range from $28 to $240 for Detroit Zoological Society members and $33 to $250 for non-members.

Busy parents can drop daytime campers off early or pick them up late to enjoy before- and after-camp activities. Early Bird drop-off starts at 7:30 a.m. and Late Owl pick-up runs until 5:30 p.m. Costs range from $5 for a single session to $50 for Monday through Friday mornings and afternoons.
